PlanetSide is a brutal and unforgiving world that has barely any tutorial or introduction. You will be thrown out into the cold and expected to fend for yourselves, learning about the different base types, the different capture systems, teleporters, respawn points, how far you can be from a sunderer, the advantages to squad leaders, all the different weapons and class roles, the vehicles and weapons unique to each faction, etc etc ETC... all while my chaingun is ripping you to pieces and making that process less than enjoyable.
But if you're an Elmo, worry not! You have veterans on your side eager to boss you around and use you as bullet shields in between the frequent occasional intentional accidental team-kills.
In any case, I hope you guys are reading up on the many wikis before jumping in so heavily disadvantaged. Well, scratch that, you're screwed either way, but at least learn which end to point the barrel. (HINT: NOT AT TEAMMATES)
I don't think that I've been more excited for a game than I have for planetside 2. There's just something about the scale of the battles that gives me a boner makes me so happy.
You'll likely see a message from me in game soon for an outfit invite.
Anyone who wants 1 of the 2 beta keys I have inbox me a reason you should get it! (I'm not gonna scrutinize your response, I've had these keys for a while and will give them to pretty much anyone that wants.)
